This months design inspiration is inspired by something as simple as surfing the web. These items caught my eye as I’ve been drawn to the sea-foam and mint greens of summer. Pairing them with a soft, cool grey takes the feel of the palette to a nice, modern, professional feel that is perfect for a photography studio space, or, a modern teen bedroom.
In this design piece, I’ve used the cool grey as a base color. Keeping the larger pieces the neutral tone, will allow you change out the accent color should you ever get bored of it. (Not that you could ever get bored of this beautiful, soft green!) By keeping the pop of mint in the accent pieces, you also keep the space fairly gender neutral by not being too feminine or masculine. Silver metallic finishes will go great with this combo too, adding just a touch more of the modern and upscale feel of this look. I can especially imagine this color palette overlooking a window to the ocean, however, it’s sure to be the perfect fit for any space in any location. Your teens and clients (or teen clients) will feel nice and relaxed around these soothing tones!
